This support person will not be able to re-enter the BirthCenter if they leave. Additionally, the support person must be healthy. No one with fever (greater than 100.4 F), cough, or other respiratory symptoms will be allowed in the BirthCenter. All BirthCenter patients should enter through the Women’s Health Pavilion doors. Do NOT go the Emergency Room.
